When they started their self catering holiday business in Penhallow seven years ago, the couple knew that they wanted to support local good causes. They decided to create calendars, featuring local scenery, which they sell to their guests and donate the money raised to St Agnes Lifeboat.

Fiona said, “Lots of our guests are photographers who come to us specifically for the stunning coastal scenery. We have even included some of their photographs in the calendar. We wanted to support St. Agnes RNLI Lifeboat as we have a strong connection to the sea. The calendars are a great way for our guests to take away a reminder of their stay at Lambriggan Court and support the life saving work of the RNLI.”
